Experience the Best Teacher.
It Is generally admitted that ex
perience is the best teacher, but
should we not make use of the ex
perience of a thousand persons is
more to be depended upon than that
of one individual. Many thousands
of persons have used Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy for coughs and colds
with the best results, which shows
it to be a thoroughly reliable prep
aration for those diseases. Try it.
It Is prompt and effectual and pleas
ant to take.

IN THE FRONT RANK
HIGHWAY SYSTEM PLANNED BY
STATE ENGINEER TO TRA
VERSE EVERY COUNTY.
Money Already Appropriated
Work to Begin Without
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 23. Nebras
ka's permanent highway system,
with a complete chain of roads tra
versing every county of the state
and stretching for several thousand
miles, has been laid out by State
Engineer George E. Johnson.
These highways will be develop
ed with a federal good roads appro
priation of $1,600,000 and a like
amount from the state. Work to
ward a permanent system of high
ways in :eDrasKa is to De started
next spring, according to present
plans, Mr. Johnson declared. When
completed the highway system will
furnish a connected net of roads
which will plcae Nebraska in the
front rank of good roads states, Mr.
Divided Into Districts.
Under the plan adopted by Mr.
Johnson, the state has been divided
into nineteen "project districts,"
each including from four to five
counties. Work will be started in
each district at one end of the con-
tiuous route through it, and will be
carried on progressively for five
years, until th eentire selected high
ways have been improved through
out their whole extent. The 1917
legislature appropriated a sufficient
sum to match the money from the
federal . allotment, which will be
availabl eduring the biennium, so
that work can proceed without any
Federal and state funds are to
be allotted among the counties on
this basis Mr. Johnson said: One
third of the total sum In proportion
to the area; one third in propor
tion to the population, and one-third
in proportion to the mileage of rural
and star mail routes in each coun
ty. To Use County Funds Also.
Counties are expected to use their
own funds in connection with those
provided by the federal and state
governments, and are given author
ity to vote special levies not ex
ceeding 5 mills for the payment of
bonds which may be issued to se
cure money with which to carry on
the work. Ordinary county road
funds may also be devoted to perm
anent highway construction.
The state engineer is now work
ing upon the apportionment of state
and federal funds for each county,
and will announce It shortly.
"Every county will be given its
exact share under the law," said
Mr. Johnson. "Some counties may
not receive any funds the first or
second year, but all will receive the
amount which they are entitled to
before the end of the( five-year per
iod allowed for construction elaps
Map Shows Plans.
Mr. Johnson and. his assistants
have completed a large map of the
entire state showing the exact lay
out for the highway improvements.
The work of locating them has oc
cupied the greater portion of the
time of the state engineer. He has
personally visited a large number of
the counties of the state in making
his selections of roads for improve
ments. The nineteen project district as

ED DRIVER SUNDAY
YOUNG LADY AND MOTHER ARE
INJURED IN FORD ACCI
DENT NEAR HERE.
Had Been to Omaha to Visit Relative
in Hospital Now Two Mem
bers of Party There
A young woman attempting to
drive a car about which she knew
but very little, resulted in two peo
ple being seriously injured last even
ing, and the car badly wrecked in
addition. August Bade, wife and
daughter, of Dunbar, together with
the husband of another daughter of
the Hades, who is in the Lord Lister
hospital at Omaha, had driven to the
metropolis from their home at Dun
bar to visit with the daughter, Mrs.
Louis Reutter. On their return Mr.
Reutter drove the car, as in going.
After they had passed here on their
way home at the corner east of My
nard, near the parsonage. Miss Helen
Bade asked to drive the car, and Mr.
Reutter allowed her to get over in
the driver's seat, while he took the
one she had occupied. The car was
started by the young lady and going
up the line did fairly well, until
they came to a place near Lee Coles'
where the road is very rough, and
the car being' 'difficult to drive, got
to wabbling back and forth across
the' road. In her attempt to get it
going straight the young lady turned
the gas control lever and the car shot
quickly onward toward the east em
bankment at the roadside. A sharp
turn throwed the car over, pinning
the driver and her mother under
neath, but the two men and another
young woman who was riding with
them escaped without injury.
Will E. Propst was telephoned for
and hastened to the spot, bringing
the occupants of the car to this city,
where they were treated by Dr.
Flynn. The doctor found the elderly
lady, Mrs. Augusta Bade, suffering
with a broken -shoulder, as well as a
dislocation, making a very complicat
ed case, and the driver. Miss Helen
Bade, with a hip dislocated. They
were hurried to the Lord Lister hos
pital by Mr. Propst and are there for
treatment now. The injuries are of
a very serious nature and it will be
some time ere they can be out of the
Mr. Propst brought the car to
Plattsmouth and s reparing it at hi3
garage. It presents a rather demol
ished appearance from its experience.
